Mulch – $300 for 17 yards—free delivery to Paloma & Moke Hill

During the last year California received the most intense rainfall events ever recorded in the state even as we experienced one of the driest years on record.  As the days wane shorter we look forward to the rainy season to bring much needed relief for the landscape, our yards and gardens. But how much water are we talking about and how do we slow that water down in our yards and gardens for beneficial use?  Did you know that on an average rainfall year (30″ of total rain), 56,000 gallons of water falls on a 3000 square foot area (the size of an average house).  A quarter acre lot receives over 210,000 gallons of water.  I point this out because rainfall, even in this dry climate brings much more water to our yards and gardens than irrigation does.  If we make our yards into life rich sponges, much of this water can be prevented from running off and causing flooding and contamination downstream.  In fact, the more we slow the water down in the mountains and foothills, the more water percolates into the ground and becomes available for our wells and for downstream water users over the course of the dry season.  The simplest way to create a bigger sponge in your yard is by mulching it with wood chips.  This organic carbonaceous material form a sponge that not only prevents runoff, but also greatly reduces evaporation and summer time soil temperature.  So if you want to keep your yard and garden healthy through this historic drought without paying for water next year, now is the time to mulch.  Paloma Pollinators offers 17 yard dump truck loads of wood chips delivered to Mokelumne Hill, Paloma, Jackson, Pine Grove or Sutter Creek for $300.  This is enough mulch to create a 2″ deep sponge over 2,750 square feet or to create an even more effective and deeper sponge over a smaller area.

Wood chip mulch also controls dust, reduces insect problems in gardens and landscapes, as well as reducing or eliminating weeds.  Call us today to order your load of water conserving, money saving mulch!  Diane 304-5802 or e-mail dianek@volcano.net
